There’s always a need to maintain the highest standards of safety at all times. Safety events can have a significant impact on personnel, the environment, and even a company’s brand. The main objective of safety systems in process plants is to prevent accidents and do so while maintaining maximum uptime and minimal operational disruption. Balancing these critical requirements often comes to a head when a process plant needs to upgrade a safety system.
Contrary to popular belief, installing an upgraded safety system does not necessarily require a lengthy shutdown of the facility. With careful planning and detailed, thorough engineering, a safety system can be upgraded with minimal disruption to facility operations. In this webinar we will describe, through an actual project experience, adopted methodology to enable migration of obsolete safety systems to latest generation equipment, while avoiding production downtime, by live transfer and minimal uninterrupted production during migration process.
